Paper Abstract

Since 2005, Thales is successfully manufacturing QWIPs in high rate production through III-V Lab. All the early claimed advantages of QWIPs are now demonstrated. The versatility of the band-gap engineering allows the custom design of detectors to fulfill specific application requirements in MWIR, LWIR or VLWIR ranges. The maturity of the III-V microelectronics based on GaAs substrates gives uniformity, stability and high production rate. In this presentation we will discuss the specific advantages of this type of detector. An overview of the available performances and production status will be presented including under-development products such as dual band and polarimetric sensors.
